Highway honor obscured

I would like to know: How many people know where the Judge John J. Ruffin Jr. Memorial Highway is?


I was not aware of it existing until I checked my weather map and found the name listed there. I checked MapQuest, but it didn’t know!

When the new courthouse was named in honor of Judge Ruffin, it made the news – why not a highway?

By the way, it also is known as a portion of U.S. Highway 25 – beginning near Ga. Highway 88 in Richmond County and continuing to the Burke County line.
